    Unique to say the least. Not my style. They remind me more of pool cues than fly rods.

    Hatton is, according to my research, a fishing historian.

    The aesthetics of his rods are inspired by 19th century rods, as far as I've read.

    I like his work quite a bit!

    maybe he could get a little more inspired to make something that is less suited for 9 Ball, and better suited for casting a fly.

    Hell no and it aint over now.......

    I've met the Gnome twice, a very nice guy. He has this special tool that can tighten up loose furrells and with out charge.

    Where did you meet him?

    His work is very interesting, and worth a look.
